Can you pull off this look?

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

Fashion magazines are showing high waisted, trouser jeans this season, but let’s get real – on the streets, we’re still drooling over those tall girls with their skinny jeans tucked into killer boots. The look is timelessly chic. We got talking about this on Shop Girls last Saturday with the always sensible fashion adviser Kevin Quinn of StyledLife. He believes that even girls with meat on their thighs can tuck in – the key is proportion. First, the jeans. Don’t try to stuff your flared bad boys in boots. The girls who do this look justice wear seriously narrow jeans. Maybe you’d never step out in them without boots covering most of your legs, but that’s OK. Different pants for different shoes. Then, pick a top that falls about mid-rear. You want a lengthening effect without going so low that it cups the tush. Kevin suggested adding some definition by layering a shorter cardigan or jacket over the tunic top. Voila! You’re smokin’. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
